The Voice David Archuleta

A Teenager’s View of David Archuleta

When we saw the One Voice Children’s Choir sing “Glorious” on YouTube, my mom got her credit card and bought tickets to the “Celebration of Christ” concert, knowing my Grandma was going, and that DAVID WOULD BE THERE! I had been watching David’s “Glorious” video multiple times a day for weeks, and I couldn’t get enough of it. His face is so sweet! In fact I have to keep drawing it :).

The whole show was amazing, but I couldn’t help but glance at the program often to see when David would be singing next. I felt so happy when he came out and performed his first number “The First Noel”. David sang a neat arrangement of “Do You Hear What I Hear” that he finished with a low, resonating note. I was enthralled. My mom and I squealed when we saw “Glorious” in the program (I think that song will be a forever favorite). Hearing David sing the lead with the children’s choir harmonizing was exactly what I had hoped! The beautiful first piano notes transported me into the song immediately. I really hope David records “Believe” (from Polar Express), his voice was incredible (I feel torn because I really like how Josh Groban sings the song, yet there’s something about David).

When we saw Masa Fukuda conducting the children’s choir in their YouTube video, we wanted to meet him! And we did! At the end of the concert, as he was exiting the building, we were able to tell him how much we enjoyed the choir. It was a treat to hear inside tidbits he told us of how David helped ease the children’s anxiety before they appeared on America’s Got Talent. David assured them he often gets nervous too. We also heard Stephanie Mabey (the composer of “Glorious”) is a sister to some former One Voice choir members. Mr. Fukuda was as adorable in person as he appears in the video.

I wish I could say I was exaggerating, but I really do want to hear David’s voice in my mind and heart at all times. I was so glad to be able to go to the concert. What a thrill :).

    And this, my dear friends, just goes to show, and prove, that David’s appeal spans all age groups! Emma, thank you for this fun re-cap. You are so lucky to have Pattirae as your grandma. We love her too!! Like you, and hundreds of others, I was frequently looking at the program to see when David was on next. Fortunately they had him spaced really well with not too many in between his numbers. 😀

    I’ve also liked Josh Groban’s “Believe” for a long time, but he’s definitely in second place now. I LOVE David’s cover of it! Again, it is now his song. (just own it David)

    Dayzee, on the previous post….. You are so funny. I’m going to be watching for the middle of the top row…. bet I’ll be able to find you! 😀 Is there a picture out now and I’ve missed it?

    Nice article, Emma! And your drawings are exceptional! You are a great artist, bringing out the sparkle in his eyes. That was a neat thing for you to be able to go with your grandma, Pattirae. I’ve met her too and she is quite a lady! Like 80% of us, I wanted to be there but due to Thanksgiving, couldn’t. You have time on your side, being 16, you lucky dog! Oh to be 16 again! 🙂 So, I’m biding my time hoping to see David in 2015, whenever he decides to do something concert wise. Hurry up David, I’m not getting any younger! haha 🙂 I also love Believe and looks like David made another song his own again! He has a way of doing that…….sorry, I’m rambling……

    Dayzee, I’ll be looking for you in the picture! 🙂

    Tawna, I really like the video with everyone shown on the stage. It was better to know where the music came from when David would look over, to know what he was looking at.. Also could see the video behind him better with the rain and then the sun came out. The whole thing was just awesome and David done another fantastic job of melting his voice right into the sound of the instruments. One of his many talents with his voice!

    Beautiful, beautiful artwork. I am wondering when you did each of them? Thank you so much for your recap. I love hearing your point of view.

    And your last thought, that you wish you could hear DA’s voice “in your mind and in your heart at all times”, this says something wonderful about you as a person. It says something about your own inner voice and how you look at life. It makes me think that all you really have to do is have faith in yourself and your own ability to know what is good, true, and right.

    Thank you for having the courage to share. ^_^

    Wow Emma! Great drawings. I love that you captured totally different aspects of his emotions. So glad your sweet grandma took you to see David. And yes, we were all sneaking peeks at that program, searching in the glow of our cell phones for the next David appearance.

    Tawna, thanks for the video. That wailing just grabs your soul. But even with the entire stage to look at I find myself seeing only David. Thanks to Jan for pointing out the nuances of the screen behind him. I really had not noticed. Duh. For me, they are just wasting their time putting up any stage dressing.

    Marshall was a part of history this week, helping to break the world record for the largest live nativity as the composer and arranger of the music for the production.

    Over 1,000 volunteers turned out at Rock Canyon Park in Provo, UT to re-enact the birth of Jesus Christ for a video to be released mid-December and shared by social media stars including the Shaytards, Devin Graham (famous for his daredevil Devin Super Tramp productions), Stuart Edge (the brain behind a series of clean pranks), creators of Cute Girl Hairstyles and Studio C.

    The music as composed and arranged by Marshall McDonald will be performed by David Archuleta, The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, Alex Boye and The Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

    “It is probably one of the most, if not the most, powerful Christmas pieces I’ve heard, and it’s still in the rough… It’s just an amazing, amazing piece of composition. Marshall’s done a great job,” Derral Eves, one of the producers told the Deseret News.

    Look forward to the #SharetheGift video’s viral release on The Piano Guys’ YouTube channel next Friday, December 12th.

    Dear Emma,

    You really have a keen eye! Your drawings captured two very different sides of David and both in sharp detail. He’s an easy subject, I would imagine. 😉
    I enjoyed reading about your concert experience. There’s nothing like hearing The Voice live, closeup, in person. Like you, I also can’t get enough of David singing “Glorious”! It’s a feel-good song that he brings to life like no one else can.

    I loved reading about how you got some scoop from the conductor of the Children’s Choir…

    ” It was a treat to hear inside tidbits he told us of how David helped ease the children’s anxiety before they appeared on America’s Got Talent. David assured them he often gets nervous too.”

    Making people feel good, that’s another talent that David has.

  26. Emma, my precious granddaughter,

    I LOVED reading your recap and the insight you have about David’s voice and his performing style. You captured perfectly what we were all feeling that evening!! May I share with our friends here a little background to this experience: I recently took five of our seven daughters, along with some granddaughters shopping for Christmas. Amber, Emma’s mom, said to me “please be sure to come by our house on your way home from our shopping spree, there is a surprise waiting there for you.” Of course I went right to their home and they had me close my eyes. When I opened them there were the two pictures Emma had drawn of David staring me in the face! When she said they were for me I became very emotional, because I knew that she knew how much this would mean to me—loving David the way I do. She is such a beautifully talented artist and captured David so well. She has drawn other pieces that literally take your breath away.

    Emma, her mom, and brother Chandler came to our home the day before Thanksgiving to help me get ready for the big day. But we ended up watching some of my favorite videos of David from YouTube (When You Say You Love Me—SLC first night when David cries from our love. If The Savior Stood Beside You—Hawaii. Glorious, and a few others. We all ended up crying. But my happiest moment was when they told me they had tickets to see David in “The Celebration of Christ.” So I knew we would be sharing that special moment together. The three of them sat in the balcony while I sat in the front with my special David friends. We were with each other before and after the show though and loved our visit with Masa Fukudo about David and the Children’s choir. We waited quite a while to see if David would come out but soon realized if wasn’t going to happen.

    I just felt a need to express to Emma how proud I am of her for writing this piece and sharing her pictures with all of you. Thank you Abbra for inviting her to become a part of The Voice family. We love it here!!

    Blessings,

    Pattirae

I bet there is a world record that needs to be broken for the number of meals dished out from a city soup kitchen at Christmas.

    There was an actual record broken near me for the amount of donations given to two animal shelters this past week so I took part donating in my children’s names as a present to them.

    So many records that need to be broken and are valuable although maybe not world records.

Bluesky… I know of all the money it takes to shoot videos and make movies and some seem a little crazy, but if in the end it sometimes is to help the hungry and homeless people and animals then it is even more fun to watch and laugh. There is so much that can be done. We have so many many ways to spend money, so many choices and you see the toys that are on the market. Could children ever enjoy Christmas as much as the generations before?

    David has a wonderful gift to give and that is what he has been given and what we have waited for. DYHWIH is a huge example of his musical talents. What an amazing rendition of another Christmas carol!

    It can be hard to know sometimes how much is enough to give. I think it is a personal and private thing (although hearing about experiences – like yours, for instance – can make me want to look even deeper). And it is true what you say: as I “give” and share the talents that I have, no matter how small it may seem, I am blessed beyond measure. I get “rescued”.

    I think DA feels this way when he sings from his heart.

    Jan…. I was just a face in the crowd. More like just a blob in the scene. My costume was all white and the bottom hem was a hula hoop covered in LED lights. Because the lights were only effective after dark, we had to wait until the sun set. We all had a spot on a huge grid to depict a nativity scene when seen from above, I am curious to see how that all worked out.

    My granddaughter just came in and gave me a big eye roll when she heard The Voice Unplugged playing on my computer. I told her it was Christmas and we were listening to carols. Her reply, “You were playing the same songs on the Fourth of July.” She gets that from her father’s side.

I think you really captured David’s spirit and his intentional kindness. So many times when I see the way David looks at others, I am reminded of the Bible stories about Jesus looking at the rich, young man. It says ,
    “Jesus looked at him and he loved him.” ( right before Jesus told the rich, young man to go ans sell all of his possessions) Sometimes, ,most times, when David looks directly at a person, I can tell that he loves him/her. I see that in your second image; especially in David’s eyes.. Those attributes are really hard to capture in art.

    Ok, Abrra asked me to post my guess so here they are.

    1. Stomping The Roses
    2. Look Around
    3. Love Don’t Hate
    4. My Hands
    5. Don’t Run Away (Or possibly I’ll Never Go)
    6. Falling Stars
    7. Wait? (Or this could also be My Hands-Alarm clock in the fire? LOL)
    8. Not A Clue LOL IS that a calendar?
    9. Don’t Tell Me? (but what about the moon?)
    10. Barriers

    I’m pretty sure they’re not all right, but also sure some are. Anyone have any guesses on the ones I missed?

    MT, I am not sure about # 7, but I think it means “The day after tomorrow”

    # 9 I am pretty sure is “Silent Night” ^_^

    Barriers was always one of my favorites.

    Now it might be off topic….. However, the thought of DA contributing to this and perhaps helping with a lullaby, just brings tears to my eyes. Here is some good information on the “OUR rescue” (Operation Underground Railroad) that Brooke’s new CD push is helping to fund. Each operation costs about 20,000 (much less when done this way than what it costs the government to do it). So, although it is a very tender topic, I thought it might be worthwhile for some to know more about the organization.

    Hope this is okay, Admins?

    And here is their website, with a bit different interview.

    I always loved Angelica’s “angel-dance” video of this song. ^_^

    That pic of DA just sitting in class being casual. There is something so rewarding about seeing it. And yet, I know he must treasure the thought that he is not being observed.

    It is kind of like the taken picture of him in the restaurant before the mission – we had a discussion about whether or not it should be shared, I remember. And in it he seemed so very serious.

    Here he is so much more relaxed. I love to see it, but I would hate for him to lose the privacy he treasures. I am glad that the whole picture is so anonymous: you can’t tell where or when or even who is sitting by him. It could be anywhere. (well, we know he is going to school and is often seen at BYU) But still – the thought that it could be anywhere adds to its charm for me.

    I don’t want to know his every moment. I want what he wants to bring to me.

    And yes, I will take the crumbs that casually drop our way! ^_^
